'Stephen Minton has produced a very readable and extremely useful book. It provides coverage on a range of areas that are of importance within primary and secondary education, drawing insightfully from classic and contemporary psychology. An excellent text, highly recommended to educators in training and in practice'-Adrian North, Professor of Psychology, Heriot-Watt University
Minton offers a well rounded view of ways of managing potentially challenging behaviour in the classroom including prejudice, bullying and conflict. He also includes stress management for teachers and developing self esteem, which could be applicable to teachers as well as learners. This book is well written and well explained.
A well-written and accessible book with useful opportunities to pause for reflection throughout and appropriate discussion topics at the end of each chapter. The text provides good summaries of the main psychological theories and introduces a range of relevant topics relating to teaching and learning, eg SEN, learning styles, discipline, with relevant sources for further reading identified.
This book is highly recommended to primary teachers in particular, as it will help them to provide a more holistic enabling environment that also supports children's PSE development. There is also effective and welcomed guidance on how to deal with stress and difficult situations.
I really like this book because it is useful for UG psychology students in all years. The later chapters focus on specific contemporary issues such as cyberbullying, teacher stress, and dealing with prejudice and discrimination: all issues my final year students studying Educational Psychology are highly interested in.
This is an interesting & useful additional text providing concise reference to educational-psycholgy related issues.
Excellent reading for all students who wish to teach in education. This is an easy book to read. Well laid out and easy to follow.
Very interesting supporting text.
A very good resource clearly identifying implications for practice.
A broad, well sourced and readable companion to any teacher training program. Minton handles a number of debates in education well.
Found useful support text for students to consider how they think about education. Have ordered 5 copies for the library and recommend text as a support to students in creating a positive learnnig environment.
Clearly written and extremely useful text which extends the student's understanding of the role and use of psychology within the school classroom.
This book provided a really fascinating dimension for many teacher training students to consider, and helped forge links between psychology and education at a time when teacher education course are highly focused on politicised government agenda.
A good and readable introduction to a range of relevant topics to the psychology of education , and the applied educational psychology practice.
This is a useful book for students to read. It supports some of the key ideas that they need to consider in enough detail for non-psychology courses.
This is a very approachable text that gives new teachers a composite of information, activities, and resources. It serves as a practical tool that the student can use to further his knowledge and apply conceptual learning.
An easy to read book which highlights the holistic view for the trainee teacher.
Some use - but difficult to integrate into an already crowded PGCE course
This is a very good book for trainee teachers as well as a good reference book for post-qualified teachers. I will recommend it to every teacher.
Good for teachers studying at any level in education studies
